With a new manager and not a single returning player on the roster, the Southampton Breakers will have a new look this season in the Hamptons Division of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League.

The team will be skippered this season by Rob Cafiero, a Villanova University graduate who was an All-American and later was drafted by the Phillies and played in the Major Leagues for several years.

Although they don’t have anyone returning from last year’s team, the Breakers have at least one player who is familiar with the league. Right-handed pitcher Mike Mandarino of Brevard College was a member of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League Champion Westhampton Aviators last summer and will bolster the pitching lineup for the Breakers this year.

Pitching should be a strength for the Breakers. Justin Topa, a freshman righty from Long Island University, had a 5.04 ERA and had 61 strikeouts in 64.1 innings pitched, winning a team-high five games. Zack Godley, another righty freshman, had an ERA below two for junior college Spartanburgh Methodist. He was a 50th round pick for the Mets in 2009 and went to Bamberg Ehrhardt High School in South Carolina, which counts Mets legend Mookie Wilson among its alumni. Sophomore Jared Wagner of Seward County Community College and sophomore Paul Budkevics of Nassau County Community College will also add depth to the pitching lineup.

Junior Rob LaRusso will be a strong player for the Breakers as a first baseman. The Molloy College player was named a top 25 prospect by Perfect Game USA last year. He also hit .321 with five homers and 49 RBIs. Kevin Stenhouse, a freshman from Rhode Island who will play first base and outfield, batted .324 and has a baseball pedigree as both his father and grandfather played in the major leagues.

Blake Amaral will be the first Hawaiian player to join Hamptons Collegiate Baseball. The sophomore infielder broke the single-season RBI record at Hawaii-Pacific this season and will likely play at third base. Dylan Swift of Indiana University should be the starting catcher for the Breakers while Jason Shaver of William and Mary will be another strong infielder. Justin Ringo of Stanford should be a standout player as well and likely will play first base. The Breakers will also have Prateek Thaman, an All-Conference player from St. Joseph’s in Patchogue.

Southampton resident Andrew Shimkus is also on the Breakers roster. He was the starting second baseman for the Mariners last season when they won both the Suffolk County and Long Island Championships.

The season will kick off on Friday, June 4, when the Southampton Breakers host the Sag Harbor Whalers at 5 p.m. at the varsity baseball field at Southampton High School. On Saturday, June 5, the Breakers will play the Aviators at the Hite Field in Westhampton Beach at 5 p.m. and on Sunday, they will play the Riverhead Tomcats at Riverhead High School at 5 p.m.
